A message from the Flatbush Tenant Coalition:
This Halloween, Monday, October 31st we’re sending a message to City Hall: it’s time to stop Predatory Equity Corporations in their tracks.
These ‘corporate bloodsuckers’ have squeezed thousands of affordable, rent-stabilized homes out of our community and made tens of thousands of families homeless.
At 9 a.m. we are joining other NYC tenant groups on the steps of City Hall to tell City Council they must pass two proposed bills. These bills:
- Force the city to reveal who these corporate bloodsuckers are, and
- Legally recognize their CONSPIRACY TO HARASS (forcing these slumlords to prove otherwise, finally taking the impossible burden of proof off tenants)
These two bills were introduced by Councilmembers Jumaane Williams, Torres, and Garodnick. We want City Council to know we stand behind these bills. THEY NEED TO SEE A CROWD!
The bills will be reviewed by City Council at a hearing immediately after the press conference – if you can, join us for that as well! We’ll march over to the hearing (across the street at 250 Broadway) immediately after.
